A refreshed Greg Inglis has re-joined his team-mates after an extended break from training and is excited about the new faces in the Rabbitohs squad this season.
Inglis, who extended his contract with Souths during the off-season until the end of the 2020 season, was given additional time off by coach Michael Maguire to spend with his family after helping Australia to Four Nations glory in England.
Having been back at Redfern for two weeks now, Inglis said he was enjoying the intensity of pre-season training and had been impressed by the young talent in the Rabbitohs ranks.
“It’s great to be back amongst the boys,” the South Sydney captain said.
“There are a lot of new faces and there is a lot of good young talent within that mix.
Besides the experienced trio of Robbie Farah, Robbie Rochow and Luke Kelly, the Rabbitohs have focused their 2017 recruitment on youngsters such as Braidon Burns, Tyrell Fuimaono, Robert Jennings and Connor Tracey.
“The young guys keep us older blokes on our toes, which makes training really good and at a high intensity, which is what we want leading into the season,” Inglis said.
